22 Prime at Discovery Suites is known for their steaks. The Cochinillo Asado, as an addition to their menu, is a welcoming change. Thanks to Discovery Suites for inviting me to try this out.
The Cochinillo Asado is a suckling pig dish that is slowly roasted. The result of this is that the skin of the pork is crispy but the meat is juicy and tender. 22 Prime’s Cochinillo Asado is served with spring asparagus, and garlic-roasted potatoes. The sauce for the Cochinillo Asado is their home-made peach chutney. Be sure to taste it first without the peach chutney. The peach chutney adds contrast to the tasty Cochinillo Asado.
The Cochinillo Asado is being offered as a set menu in 22 Prime. The set menu is good for two. Each guest will be served with a bowl of Spanish Garlic and Pimenton Soup. The soup base of this delectable soup is from the bones of the suckling pig.
A dessert sampler is also included in this set menu. My favorite amongst the dessert sampler is the Chocolate Mousse.
The Cochinillo Asado set menu is available at PhP 1,850.
